Global Arts Village is an emerging international residential art center in New Delhi, India. We encourage diversity and multicultural exchange among creative people of all kinds. We practice community living, sharing meals and evening activities. The Village enables artists to experience a natural, eco-friendly environment for creative work.
The Global Arts Village is a three-acre property that includes gardens, a multi-purpose studio, sculpture workshop, a meditation and performance hall, a common building, a dance studio, performance spaces and accommodations. The buildings are in accordance with the ancient wisdom of Vastu, which harmonizes man-made structures with their natural environments.
The Village offers residency programs to emerging, mid-career and established artists in all major creative disciplines. We are building a community that blends art, culture and consciousness. Individuals with exploratory spirits are invited to join.
